So I walked out the door this morning to be immediately greeted by that distinct sound of a bike sliding down the road. Burst out the gate, and pelted toward the guy on his back in the middle of the street... Long story short: neighbours dog got out (they're building, fence not finished ), the guy couldn't stop. I think he ended up alright, he could tell me he only hurt in his shoulder but I wouldn't let him take the helmet off. Most damage would be in shoulder thanks to his gear, but an off duty ambo rocked up moments after I got to him so I left it to the pro. At this point there's at least 3 people with the rider, the dog has been carried back to their house (but there was nothing we could do for him) so I got one of the other tradies to wheel the bike back to my driveway with me. Now I take off to the vet with one of the neighbours, and pretty much got on a train to uni from there. Where i'm greeted on swanston st with a gust of wind that stopped me dead in my tracks... Then I notice 3 more bikes on their sides... Geez. I didn't pick these up, however. Given the power of the wind they'd blow over again when I left, and I wasn't going to risk doing more damage. But did I do the right thing with the bike at home? I thought its better than leaving it on the street, it can basically be picked up whenever. The guy knows where it is and it's behind a gate at least..
